We take a look at the difference between TaylorMade's R15 and AeroBurner drivers in our video comparison
According to TaylorMade, the AeroBurner is the brand’s ‘fastest and most aerodynamic’ driver to date.
The key innovation is a new speed pocket that extends deeper into the club, increasing the size of the sweet spot and producing higher ball speeds.
This slot technology is also accompanied by a high-strength flexing club face.
The R15 driver marks 15 years of ‘R Series’ innovations, and refined versions of Inverted Cone Technology, the Adjustable Loft Sleeve and Ultra-Thin Wall Casting can all be found.
The main story though is the advancement of the Speed Pocket from the SLDR driver, which has been replaced by a new Front Track system that is 12mm closer to the face.
This helps move 40g of mass closer to the face for a lower and more forward CG for reduced spin.
This Front Track system also houses two 12.5g weights that can be placed in the toe (to reduce hooks), heel (reduce slices), centrally (more distance), or split between the heel and toe (more forgiveness).
The overall effect is a driver where 75% of its mass is low and forward to encourage a high launch, low spin flight for more distance and forgiveness.
As mentioned, Ultra Thin Wall Casting saves weight, Inverted Cone Technology expands the sweetspot, and the Adjustable Loft Sleeve offers 12 positions and 4° of loft adjustability, allowing you to get the most from the stock 9.5º, 10.5º, 12º and 14º heads.
The R15 driver will feature a satin white or gloss black finish, Fujikura Speeder shaft and Lamkin UTx grip, with 460cc (£369), 430cc (£369), 460cc TP (£429) and 430cc TP (£429) models on sale now.
